Read his description of his procedures in an operation. He works with a staff who anticipates his every move. Their obvious training leaves no doubt about the outcome. No one could improve on or equal his capabilities in my view.

Dr. Koeleveld was hands down the best doctor I have ever seen. He was kind, compassionate and actually introduced himself unlike two other doctors I had seen previously that didn't bother. I never felt rushed or hurried, and I never had to wait more than five minutes. He explained everything to me while we looked at my MRI. He ended up finding a bone spur on my spine that was causing me so much discomfort. This came after being diagnosed by three doctors with a herniated disc. He removed it two weeks later and I feel 100% better and back to my daily workout routine! The experience with surgery was great at Rex as well.

Dr Koeleveld repeatedly told me I did not need surgery. That I needed time. My back got worse until I finally lost partial use of my leg. He then did surgery and I got pain relief for about three months. I had permanent nerve damage to my right leg. When my back pain returned he said there was nothing else he could do for me. I went to see a "real" spine surgeon and his words were he could not believe what Dr Koeleveld had done to my back He did surgery on my back and two tears later I am pain free and mobile. Note the partial use of my right leg will never return.

Dr. Robin Koeleveld is, without a doubt, the finest neurosurgeon and compassionate human being! IAfter 7 years of horrible pain, I knew I could trust Dr. Koeleveld! I could not have managed without Jennifer at Trinity Wellness. Dr. Koeleveld he sat down, reviewed my MRI. I needed back fusion-L4, L5 & S1. 4+ hour surgery-2 rods, 6 screws all by Dr. Koeleveld himself! I am so thankful to be able to stand and walk and grateful to Dr. Koeleveld! He is a very skilled neurosurgeon and i adore him for helping me. Thank you, I'm Grateful i found you!

*This Dr. Was rude, condescending, showed no care or concern. Referred me to a Physical therapist without explanation. I asked him if he read my MRI AND HE RESPONDED THAT HE DIDNT BELIEVE IN THAT MEss This report said I have disc Herniation, bulging disc and osteoarthritis. I told him I have severe sciata nerve pain that radiated down my leg and that pain was shutting and stabbing pain. Also burning pain and numbness in my legs and feet. He acted like he had no listening skills or that he just did not care. I wouldn't refer my dog to him. He was a great disappointed. .

Dr. Koeleveld is absolutely the best. He removed my brain tumor about 20 years ago and about 5 years ago fixed my husbands herniated disc. He is very thorough and takes the time to explain everything. We were both very very satisfied with our results. Highly recommend Dr. Koeleveld!

Dr. Koeleveld sets the bar HIGH! He is literally the best! Wonderful bedside manner, wonderful care! He came in when my situation was pretty bad; he reassured me, developed and stuck to the plan, answered all of our uneducated questions and quickly became one of my most favorite people! I have a warm spot in my heart for him and not simply because he saved my life! My favorite and best neurosurgeon! You can't go wrong with him!

Dr Koeleveld operated on me this morning to remove a mass wrapped around my lower spinal cord. Without this operation I would be eventually paralyzed and incontinent. He was all smiles after operation. He’s the best, just a patch over my incision - no drain tube. He came recommended to me by a physical therapist who treated many of his patients. They all said they had no infection and were 100% happy with Dr Koeleveld. He is the best decision I’ve ever made!!!!!!

Both my wife and I are patients of Dr. Koeleveld (back and carpal tunnel) and, simply put, he is the best...all neurosurgeons are good but none are better than Dr. Koeleveld.

Dr. Koeleveld is a brilliant and gifted surgeon. I felt 100% confident in his care and would highly recommend him to anyone in need of spinal surgery. I was diagnosed with a bilateral pars defect and spondylolisthesis in May 2016 at the age of 45. I'm now 18 weeks post laminectomy, foraminotomies, decompression and L5-S1 fusion and am extremely pleased with the results. He is compassionate, yet straight-forward and conservative in his approach - and he is always smiling.

Dr Koeleveld walks into the room with a smile, and is super friendly! Takes the time to discuss your situation and come up with a plan. He performed my L5/S1 discectomy and I felt relief right away in the recovery room- he's awesome and so is his staff! 5 stars all the way!
